Overview
AirMax 2x2 PtP Dish Antenna
RocketDish is a Carrier Class Dish Antenna that was designed to seamlessly integrate with Rocket M radios (sold separately). Rocket M combines the brains in one robust unit; pair Rocket M with RocketDish to create powerful 2x2 MIMO PtP bridging applications. This seamless integration gives network architects unparalleled exibility and convenience. On the right is one example of how RocketDishes can be deployed:

Integrated AirMax Technology


Unlike standard WiFi protocol, Ubiquiti's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) AirMax protocol allows each client to send & receive data using pre-designated time slots scheduled by an intelligent AP controller. This "time slot" method eliminates hidden node collisions & maximizes air time efciency. It provides many magnitudes of performance improvements in latency, throughput, & scalability compared to all other outdoor systems in its class. Intelligent QoS Priority is given to voice/video for seamless access. Scalability High capacity and scalability. Long Distance Capable of high speed 50km+ links Latency Multiple features dramatically reduce noise.

GPS Synchronization *
Pair RocketDish with Rocket M GPS to utilize Ubiquiti AirSync GPS Synchronization technology. AirSync enhances the hardware and software of Rocket M to use GPS signals for precision timing. GPS Signal Reporting AirOS was upgraded to take full advantage of the new GPS hardware in Rocket M GPS units; easily manage/monitor GPS satellite signals. No Co-location Interference Synchronized transmission among Rocket M GPS powered BaseStations effectively eliminates co-location interference. Seamless AirMax Integration Rocket M GPS units seamlessly integrate with AirMax BaseStation and RocketDish Antennas. Channel Re-use Frequency reuse for increased scalability.

Easy Installation
RocketDish Antennas and Rocket M radios have been designed to seamlessly work together.

Datasheet

Installing Rocket M on RocketDish requires no special tools, you simply snap it securely into place with the universal Rocket mount built into the antennas.
